    I bought the Wii for like 250 plus tax and every penny was worth it.
    Which means they're ripping off us English even more!!!!!!
    250 dollers is about 130 pounds

    That is the exchange rate. It is not that simple when actually purchasing it in those countries.

    You will find that most things are the same amount of dollars that they are in pounds

    Either way, Nintendo are on to a good number with this one, and they know it. I begrudge having to pay it, but because I love my Wii, I'll pay it.
    And hey, it's cheaper than crack!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey u guys, he is entitled to his opinion.
    Although, I think the Wii is priced just right. Not too high, not too low. Most people like to think of the Wii as an overpriced gamecube X 2. But in fact and I Quote "The Wii is Next Generation" and more. Well worth the cost!
    Again many would disagree.
    But my friend, just give them a little more time (developers and publishers) and you will b glad you made the investment!

    Everything about the Wii is pretty much in demand. It's why there hasn't been a price drop - what's the point in dropping the price when the demand is still so high? That's bad buisness sense.

    If there was a price drop, there would be even more demand for a console that is already notorious for being sparse.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    they do nickle and dime you to death but overall its normally cheeper than the other 2 systems in the end even adding 3 more wii motes and nunchucks... but then you fell the urge to buy the classic controller to match you VC games, when a gamecube and wiimoe would have worked fine instead...
    and you buy the zapper for FPS games.
    The steering wheels for driving games,
    The sports add on's for the wiimote, ect. ect. ect. this is stuff you dont honestly need to play it. you just buy it more or less for the novelty of it...

    Most the games are in the same price range as any other systems between 30-40 for a good title

    honestly with how well the wii is selling im suprised they havent increased the price... you know they could eaisly do it and get away with it because of the demand for them.

    i dont think it matters what any of us think because the fact of the matter is the wii is selling like hotcakes and nintendo is making loads of money, why should prices drop? why should they make cheaper games, controllers ect. the fact is they are a buisness and a very good one at that.

    If you think the wii is expensive, you should see the 360 and other stuff, besides here in america the wii is the cheapest possible, and you should never buy 2nd or 3rd party games for retail price, buy em used! You can get like 5 games for the price of one if their used.
